But but but ... sexuality says nothing about availability. It just says what you like. If a married man told me he was heterosexual I wouldn't assume he wanted to sleep with anyone other than his wife.

No - but my point was that there's no need (as far as I can see) to communicate sexual preferences unless you're looking for a relationship.

But then again, I think in formulating my argument more succinctly, I now disagree with my own point of view. Erm - out of cheese error - redo from start.

Follow her - she speaks in sentences!

Well, you probably wouldn't go around shouting about them, but all the same you may be asked about them or whatever.

Eg. I still would say I'm vegetarian, even when I'm not hungry.

There is if, for example, one is part of a sexual minority and wants to make a political statement, be an activist, or raise awareness of sexuality issues.

Yep - that just about sums up why my argument was shonky.

This is also a situation in which you might very much want to label yourself—to raise visibility of the label and what it denotes.

Gossip is another important context in which descriptions of sexuality turn up.
